Mike, actually the history of a manufacturer is very important. A car
for most people, with exceptions to multi millionaires and
billionaires, is the second largest purchase for most people. As such,
it is imperative that you look at the history of a manufacturer when
making a decision.
A company that has performed very poorly in the past (road to
redemption?) you want to stay away from them until they have a long
history of building the best. Why take a chance on a bad manufacturer
(even if they are now good) if they have such a poor history only a few
Mike do you not admit that 5, 10, 15 years ago GM was inferior to
toyota in quality? Can you honestly say GM was as good in quality as
toyota in the 80's and 90's?
What was the Road to Redemption about? Admiting they were not upto
standard. Therefore, when making a mojor purchase such as a car, you
have to consider the recent history.
So, Mike, please answer, was GM upto Toyota quality 5, 10, 15, years
